The Beautiful Cubit System

Douglas, Ian

An analysis of the Egyptian Royal cubit, presenting some research and opinions flowing from that research, into what I believe was the original cubit, and how it was corrupted. I show various close arithmetic approximations and multiple ways of getting the divisions of the cubit, as well as some related measures. The cubit also encapsulates the basic components for the metric system.

Changes from version 1.0.0: 1.0.1 to 1.0.5 : Added formulas with ρ 1.0.6 : Added Fractal dimension of the boundary of the dragon curve Cd,, and more exact approximation with ρ³. Added comments about ₢ being 0.5237. Added approximation for Grand Metre with ρ³. Added symbols table and assorted fix-ups.
